In november 2007 Rachel Cohen created an exhibition and treasure hunt to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Barbican Library. 25 photos by the artist were hidden in books published in each of the past 25 years. The photos were posted daily on the website and at the library, with verbal clues too. Each day the reader who solved the clue and found the photo won a framed and signed copy.

For example the image above shows the City of London at twilight as a clue for ‘The Remains of the Day’ by Kazuo Ishiguro. Can you guess any of the others?
